Em hotep, friends!

Not to derail this subject, but what you said piqued my interest, Rev. Sobeq; I wanted to bring this up here in case anyone else besides me is confuzzled.

I was taught that we're not supposed to worship informally at our Senut shrines, which was what I was attempting to explain when I talked about keeping them separate somehow (to a lesser degree of success, I think :P). Is that the case? Or does it not matter as much?

Thanks! ^_^


Em hotep!

You're not wrong! There's just a number of ways that space can be separated. In a perfect world the Senut shrine and informal worship space will be completely separate. If there isn't enough space, however, the Senut shrine can be contained within the informal shrine -- a dedicated portion of the shrine space devoted only to Senut. This might look like a chest with Senut tools in it, which is opened and then set up on a cloth in one's informal shrine for Senut; or a shelf on one's shrine cabinet that is dedicated only to Senut; or even a space within the informal shrine that is only touched during the Senut rite.

It's still a dedicated set-up for Senut, but it may overlap with the informal shrine if that's what makes sense within a given space.

Em hotep, Rev. Sobeq!

Thanks very much for the explanation! ^_^ That's what I figured, but . . . then I second-guessed myself. Much obliged!

Em Hotep,

I find that I get different "feelings" or "responses" in shrine / senut depending on the time of day that I do them -- and strangely the time of year. I often find it most fulfilling if I do it at night-time, when the sun has completely set. If I'm going to work or know I will have a late night, I try and do it in the morning around 10am or so. Usually, though, I prefer to do it at night. The candles and quiet atmosphere of night-time brings something peaceful and ethereal to the room. :)
